How to copy Office documents to your Windows Phone 7 device

Although we just showed you how to use your phone as a USB drive, which is excellent for copying media or just carrying files between computers you sync with, one downside was it wouldn't work for Office files (docs, PowerPoint, Excel) or PDFs.

Luckily, over at Marauderz Stuff, they figured it out: they created a simple webserver program for your local network. The idea is you download and install this mini-app to your PC, run it and then via Wi-Fi, you can connect your phone up to your PC. Since Mobile Internet Explorer allows downloading of documents, that's all this is doing: creating a local web page where you can list files to transfer easily.

It's almost too simple.

The author even includes a walk-through video (after the jump, along with directions) to show you how it works and how it looks. Seems like the Windows Phone community is rocking pretty hard these days, solving quite a few "issues" with ease.

  1. Download the program, which you can grab here. You'll need .NET Framework 3.5 which you should already have if on Windows 7.
  2. Next, create a folder on your computer to place the documents you wish to share. Run the webserver app and select that folder for sharing.
  3. The port should be the default.
  4. Now run Start Service.
  5. Finally, enter in the address into Mobile Internet Explorer and enjoy!

Oh wow, this app is great! Even if you want to just send docs and pdf to your phone but being able to use it to stream content to the phone as well is great.
